As the Internet population grows, not only computers but household electric appliances, such as VCRs and a refrigerators, will become connected to a network. The demand of connecting appliances to a network is increasing, however, other cheap objects are difficult because of the cost or technical problems. In this research, we focus on connecting people to the Internet. We propose the Personal Server Model that sets up a personal agent on the Internet. An agent, we called Personal Server, obtains person's information by using sensors. Personal Server also provides information via Internet. With this Personal Server, any person can become an Internet node virtually. By treating person as an Internet node, applications that use the personal information can be developed easily like conventional Internet applications.
